The Revelstoke Caribou Rearing in the Wild project received $50,000 in funding from the Columbia Basin Trust's Environmental Initiatives Program.

"The Revelstoke Caribou Rearing in the Wild Society thanks CBT for its support of community-based caribou recovery," said Sarah Boyle, Vice-Chair of the RCRW Society. "These funds will help construct the maternity pen that will protect caribou and their calves at their most vulnerable time."

The Environmental Initiatives Program provided more than $1 million in funding to 36 community initiated and supported projects that support environmental conditions and education in the basin. Over the past 11 years, it has provided more than $5 million in funding to different projects for environmental conservation, restoration, stewardship and education.

"These projects will have positive effects on the Basin environment through both direct action and education," said Sabrina Curtis, CBT Director, Sector Initiatives, "helping reduce the impacts people have on our region's aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems."

The next large intake for grants will take place this fall. For more information, visit www.cbt.org/eip.
